They say that the colour blue is rather cold and chilling colour, however on this occasion I found it to be rather warm and comforting in an unusual sort of way...

Thank you so very much for all you most appreciated and varied comments following yesterdays upload.

The sun is trying to warm the rather dank skies at the moment, so I may get out and about with Julie and Kizmet later.

I hope that you all have a great day ahead whatever that may bring.

I like this shade of blue but I think it must have been a job lot! I like the darkness of it - hints of day to come.
